Attracting and recruiting young people from the local community can help develop a more diverse future workforce, offering pathways to young candidates who might not have considered careers in the NHS.
NHS Employers is supporting The Prince’s Trust's health and social care programme, working to improve access for young people from diverse backgrounds into sustainable jobs and apprenticeships in health and care.
The fully funded scheme offers pre-employment programmes and one-to-one mentoring for young people, who have the opportunity to develop skills, confidence and first-hand experience of working in the sector, while employers benefit from work ready candidates to fill workforce vacancies.
